Don't be fooled by its name. There's more than two ways to wear the new #linearDUO. This dress gets its moniker from the dual maxi length panels that cover over the midi length dress underneath. Tapping in to one of the most versatile styles from linear yesteryear, we updated the original bestseller with wrist length sleeves, a fab, flowy fabric and a more relaxed fit in the frock. Fret not, because you can knot, twist and belt the DUO in a multitude of new ways!
- Wear it as is for a classic maxi look from the front/ midi suprise from the side! Extra points if you decide to pull up the balloon sleeve to elbow length when transitioning through the 'what is this weather?' season :)
-Belt the dress underneath the back panel and cover over the front panel with the front closure of your belt for a billowy cape-like effect. May we suggest the #linearLinkBelt and #AvivBelt in clear to give your silhouette a more defined cut? Another option for you beloved belters is to pull the back panel over your shoulder and tuck the balance of the panel through your belt. You can repeat the step with the front panel on the other side for a bold shoulder they haven't seen before.
-Knot the front and back panels to one side to create a subtle drape that says, "I can go classic too, ya know?" Switch sides and pull that knot to knee length for a looser take on the 'knot' so average midi.
-Only knot the front panel and let the back side billow in the season's best breeze. They may see you make a grand entrance, but there'll be plenty of drama as you exit anywhere.
Maybe we should have named this the 'VERSATIL-IO', but why waste time pronouncing all of those syllables when you can just buy the DUO now? :)
Blonde Model is 5’9 and wears XS. She is size 4
Brunette Model is 5'4 and wears XL. She is size 14. See the 'Cobalt Blue' color for more images of the model in this design.
*The dot design you see on this dress is not an actual pattern design, rather, it is actually embossed (raised) threading in the same color as the garment that creates the look. Some of the 'dots' may appear to be a lighter shade than the dress in some of the images, but it is just a result of flash photography. We kept the same fabric as our last DUO run (from two years ago), but got this beautiful textured dot version to update the look.
This style consists of a midi shift dress with maxi length panels that cover the front and back of the garment. The fit is based on the underdress (aka MIDI) as that is the dress that sits closest to the body. The panels connect to the midi by the shoulders and under the arm/chest area.
This underdress is not fitted, rather it is meant to hang as a slightly relaxed fit against the body with enough wiggle room in the waist/hips area.The style could be considered more of a 'shift' dress. Although there is no spandex in the woven fabric, it does have a little ‘give’, so it will move when you do. The shoulders and chest area are most true to size on the chart, so if you are broader in your chest/shoulders that you are in the rest of your body, we suggest sizing up for more ease of motion. Otherwise refer to the size chart below.
-This style is maternity friendly and can also provide ‘coverage’ early on if one needs (the panels can ‘hide’ the underdress when worn down). We suggest sizing up if you prefer to wear later in the pregnancy.
- Back zipper allows for easy access into this dress.
-Wrist length balloon sleeves with loose, elastic cuffs allow the wearer to move the sleeve up to the elbow for a 3/4 length style.
-Model is not wearing any slip under the Duo dresses, but we suggest nude colored undergarments or the #LinearFlipSlip or #linearSlipSkirt if you prefer any additional coverage.
-Please refer to the ‘Product Description’ tab for all the ways to wear this style.
SIZE GUIDE: If your sizing overlaps on the chart and you would like extra length or more wiggle room in the chest/shoulder area, try the larger of the two sizes.
LENGTH/WIDTH GUIDE: Approximate lengths from shoulder to front hem at its shortest point. All measurements are taken when dress is on a flat surface. Approximate chest/hips measurements are measured across. Double for complete circumference.
GUIDE TO FINDING YOUR MEASUREMENTS:
LENGTHS- Place a measuring tape at the center point of one of your shoulders (Also known as HPS- High Point Shoulder). The '0' (zero) on the tape should be your starting point. Drop the tape and let it hang. It helps to look in a full length mirror to determine the length that suits you (If you prefer above, on or below the knee). For reference, average lengths (depending on your height) fall between 37-41inches on size XS. Since everyone's torso/leg lengths are different (even if two people are the same height), coverage length can never be exact. For all styles, we list the approximate lengths of our dresses measured from HPS. Please check the lengths to see if they work for you.
WIDTHS: Chest- Position the '0' (zero) of the measuring tape underneath one armpit aligning it as much as possible with the center part of your bust. Wrap around the circumference of your chest area until the tape matches point zero from the backside. Keep in mind that knits (stretchy styles) can accommodate widths that are broader than the listed dimensions due to fabric forgiveness, while wovens (fabric with minimal or no stretch) will only 'give' to a certain point. Usually, patterns are adjusted to work for sizing when the fabric is woven.
Hips- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start at the widest point of hips.
Arms- Repeat steps for measuring Chest, but start under armpit and measure around biceps.

This fabric is 100% Poly Air Flow.
It is as light as a silk, but with a crepe-like finish. Although there is no spandex in the threading, this woven fabric does have a bit of 'mechanical' stretch and has a small amount of 'give'.
This version of our DUO has an embossed 'dot' texture created by threads on top of the fabric. There are natural variations to each dot and some minor loose threading is sometimes common in this fabric design. Please remove with a small nail scissor at your own discretion.
Hand/Machine wash cold (inside out). Spot clean. Lay flat to dry. Steam on low heat inside out. Dry clean at your own preference.
